KBOO @ The Clinton: The Inconvenient Truth about Waiting for Superman

Showtimes

KBOO and the Clinton Street Theater have formed a partnership to bring you a monthly film series about....well, it could be about radio, or about anyone of the many programs that KBOO airs--politics, labor, human rights, and, of course, lots of music.

A new film every second Thursday of the month, so stayed tuned to the radio and check back on the website, because you never know what might be happening month to month.

Tonight's film is brought to you by Bill Resnick and the Old Mole Variety Hour, and we'll start the evening with a fantastic line-up of speakers who work tirelessly in the front line struggles of our educational system.

Doors open at 5:30pm.

The Inconvenient Truth Behind Waiting for Superman
Director: 
Mollie Bruhn, Julie Cavanaugh, Lisa Donlan, Norm Scott, Darren Marelli
Country: 
USA
Year: 
2011
Runtime: 
65 minutes

A group of New York City public school teachers and parents wrote and produced this documentary in response to Davis Guggenheim's highly misleading film, 'Waiting for Superman.' 'The Inconvenient Truth Behind Waiting for Superman' provides a critique of an increasingly free-market driven education system, the undermining of teacher unions and overall faith in the idea that charter schools are just what the country needs. The film highlights the real life experiences of public school parents and educators and takes a holistic look at education reform.

Special Admission

Tonight's event is free, but please consider making a donation to KBOO, or, better yet, become a member.
